Glad that GM Jeff Luhnow hired who he thought was the best guy and not the best former Astro.
Hopefully he can get him some better players soon. I'm hopeful Singleton and Cosart start with the big club next year and some of the other top prospects start filtering their way onto the big league roster.
They've reached the bottom, so it will get better immediately. How fast will likely depend on their ability to put 5 viable starters out there. That Pence trade will work out well for them; they wisely avoided ML "ready" AAA foolsgold Lastings er Dominic Brown and took the AA top prospects instead.
They didn't need more former Astros around.
